The Bagru Dabu quilt takes its name from the small town in Rajasthan where it is made. Bagru is famed for its traditional fabric-dying techniques specialising in vegetable dyes such as indigo and the method known as dabu, a process that has remained unchanged for centuries. Knowledge of how to mix and apply speciality dyes has been passed down through families over generations. The fabrics are dyed in small workshops often attached to the family home and then dried in open fields in the middle of town. Only 10 percent of what’s made in Bagru is actually exported which means their beautifully crafted fabrics are seldom seen outside India.
Dabu involves a process of ‘mud resist printing’. A special clay-mud mixture is prepared and applied to the fabric using a woodblock. Sawdust is sprinkled on to the mud while still wet to help the curing, drying process. Once dry the fabric is dipped into indigo dye and then washed to remove the clay, revealing a reverse-print pattern, similar to the batik method. This quilt uses “double dabu” - if you look closely you will see two different patterns overlaid.

How to use:
Lightly-padded, our quilts can be used alone over a sheet in mild weather, or with a duvet for extra warmth in winter. They also look stunning folded at the end of the bed, as a decorative throw.
This quilt has been dyed with natural plant-based indigo. This can leave a blue residue, which is the sign that its real indigo and not a synthetic dye. Wash separately with a minimal amount of natural soap or detergent. Gentle hand washing is preferred, or machine wash separately with cold water using a gentle cycle (for delicates). Air dry out of direct sunlight. Dry cleanable.
As all our fabrics are made using traditional print-making techniques there can be subtle variations in colours and patterns. Imperfections are normal and are a reminder that the fabrics are made entirely by hand.
